Cos d'Estournel makes stylish wines, and the 1995 is showing extremely well. Less hefty than wither Montrose or Calon-Ségur, it possesses intense chocolate and black-currant flavors, a round lid palate, and a fine, lingering finish. With its relatively high proportion of Merlot, Cos seems fairly approachable but will need time to mature fully.

This powerhouse is rather traditional and decadent compared to the modern-day wines of Cos. Ink-colored and full-bodied, with ripe fruit aromas, velvety tannins and intense berry and spice flavors. Best after 2002.

Red-ruby color, not quite as saturated as the '96. More roasted and less minerally than the '96: notes of black fruit, game, and toasty oak. Tightly wrapped and rather taut today, but offers terrific concentration and length. Today the wine's tannins are very visible, and perhaps not quite as sweet as those of the '96, and firm acids are not yet in complete harmony with the wine. But this will be superb with six to eight years of bottle aging.

A wine of extraordinary intensity and accessibility, the 1995 Cos d'Estournel is a sexier, more hedonistic offering than the muscular, backward 1996. Opulent, with forward aromatics (gobs of black fruits intermixed with toasty pain grillé scents and a boatload of spice), this terrific Cos possesses remarkable intensity, full body, and layers of jammy fruit nicely framed by the wine's new oak. Because of low acidity and sweet tannin, the 1995 will be difficult to resist young, although it will age for 2-3 decades. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2025.

Cos d'Estournel's unfiltered 1994 is one of the top wines of the vintage. It boasts an opaque blue/black/purple color, as well as a fabulously sweet nose of black fruits, licorice, pain grillé, and Asian spices. Full-bodied, with sweet, opulent fruit that reveals none of the vintage's tough tannin, this remarkably rich, well-balanced, classic wine will prove to be uncommonly long lived. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2025.

The vibrant color gives Cos away, and then the sheen of new oak over deeply extracted, meaty scents of plums confirms the château's rich essence. you might get lost in all the lavish fruit, so lush and harmonious that you miss the steely spine at the core. But it's there, inside this bright, accessible wine - a taut backbone to hold it all in balance as it ages. That accessibility is something of a Cos illusion. Cellar it until 2008-10 to see why.

The 1988 has an intriguing bouquet of exotic spices and black fruits. Although it has softened up since bottling, it remains a hard-edged, tannic, austere wine that requires patience. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2020.
